From 'Desktop' to 'Web'

The rumors of google planning to launch a cheap, Internet-linked PC without any hard drive and based on an open-source operating system has made me think, 'Is this going to be the most needed catalytic breakthrough for web2.0?'

Web2.0 had not certainly been a buzzword in 2005 but the term definitely drew some attention during last year. The term is rapidly gaining attention in tech community.

Today there are several players into this Web2.0 space and the count is increasing day by day. Few of these, I have read about, in last few months are - salesforce.com, writely.com, ThinkFree.com, 37signals.com, Flickr.com(acquired by Yahoo).

The growth of Web2.0 indicates transformation from 'Desktop' to 'Web'(rather from 'Microsoft' to 'Google'!!!)

Even Microsoft can't keep itself out of this space. It has recently announced launch of a beta version of 'Microsoft Office Live' (to be launched in early 2006).
